I'm trying to install the header-only libraries of boost.

$ ./ --prefix=/path/to/prefix
$ ./b2 --prefix=/path/to/prefix headers

generates, as you pointed out, a boost directory in the current directory
that contains all
the headers.

At least in my system this does not, however, install anything (there is no
boost directory
in /path/to/prefix/include). The directory generated also contains the
headers of
non-header-only libraries.

Should I just move this directory to my prefix manually and leave the
headers of non-header-only
libraries inside?
